Ongoing Support

Strong partnerships are at the core of innovative health research. SHRF joins with other funding agencies, non-profit organizations, industry and other health research supporters to encourage success, connections and action in Saskatchewan’s health research environment. SHRF partnerships benefit the Saskatchewan research community by combining resources to support research through programs offered by SHRF or the partner and by leveraging each other’s strengths, connections and resources. 

If you are a potential partner organization or a researcher looking for matching support, contact fundinginfo@shrf.ca to discuss ways we can work to support Saskatchewan's health research ecosystem. 

How To Apply

Each application must be made online through SHRF’s Research Management System (SHRF RMS). All follow up documents will be accessed there. Our system helps facilitate the peer review process.
